Happy 1st Birthday to Anya!

Good morning, Birthday Girl!

Anya turned one today! We had a pretty normal day – Lex and I worked, and she went to day care. Tonight we celebrated by going out to dinner with some of my family, including my sister Samantha, who came in from Penn State to celebrate both Anya’s birthday and her own 21st birthday, which is on Monday (Happy birthday, Sam!). Tomorrow we have the parties!

I find it mind-boggling that in just one year Anya transformed from this tiny, helpless, blotchy mush into a beautiful, intelligent, bubbly little person. Here are all of Anya’s bear pictures from her first year (Thanks for the idea, Saina!). It’s pretty amazing to see how she’s grown.

First day home from the hospital:

3 1/2 months (we forgot to take bear pictures up until this point):

5 months:

6 months:

7 months:

8 months:

9 months:

10 months:

11 months:

And finally…1 YEAR OLD!!!!

Our big girl!

    I love the pictures! I know I’ve said this before — but what a great idea to take pictures of her with the bear… you can really see how she has grown and gained personality! I love it!
